Trivia

Ploning (2008) is the Philippine's official entry for Best Foreign Language Film in the 2009 Academy Awards. A special FAP (Film Academy of the Philippines) committee, headed by National Artist for Film Eddie Romero, voted Ploning (2008) over Caregiver (2008), three votes to two. The two movies were part of a six-film shortlist that included the Cinemalaya festival winner Tribu (2007) and Endo (2007). Committee members included Jose N. Carreon, secretary of the Directors Guild of the Philippines, Inc.; William Mayo, president of the Philippine Motion Picture Directors Association; Johnny Delgado, chairman of the Actors' Workshop Foundation; Pablo S.

Ploning is unconventional
20 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have been so hesitant to watch Filipino movies because they are very predictable but Ploning is different. Its brilliant and certainly a masterpiece for me. The story depends on the characters not the plot. Its back and forth of the scenes make it really exciting. The cinematography is excellent, a new beginning for Philippine movie industry which changes the style and mood from the conventional way of movie making to a more advance story telling. I am so amazed how those characters carry themselves in a way that you will understand what they feel and what they really want. Ploning (brittle) is instrumental for Digo to find his past. everything is surrounded by stories to which everyone should at least remember not to forget. Simple things make sense. I give a two thumbs up to the designers and scouts who really did their homework to make the movie realistic . The panoramic view of the place adds excitement and calmness to which everyone feels every angles of the camera works. Its a story of love, sadness and hope. I love it!
